There are stories of "coming out" all around these forums. And there's an interesting discussion of "coming out" to your church here: http://cnvillage.org/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=5431

One of my sons-in law gets very embarrassed on the subject of nudity, and I always enjoyed embarrassing him. One day as we all sat at their dining table, I believe he thought he would embarrass me by announcing to my grandkids, "Grandpa lives where everybody run around naked." Where do people get this idea that all we do is run? My oldest grandson (about 8 or 9 at the time; he's now 18) said, "Uh, uh!" He couldn't believe it; my older daughter took it pretty much in stride, and my younger daughter was shocked. Interestingly, my one granddaughter (9 or 10 at the time (turns 20 this April 10--2 days after I turn 69) used the word "nude" instead of "naked".

Of course, talking about where I live does not embarrass me. When I was in the hospital last week, I told everyone I spoke to that I live in a nudist resort. One nurse had no idea what a nudist resort was. One man (the third out of the four roommates I had) was very interested and asked all kinds of questions. He had only heard the negative that unknowing people make up out of ignorance and from what others tell them, and he was very glad to talk with someone who could give him the truth about living clothes-free from personal experience. As he was leaving, he said that I might see him here at the resort. I seriously doubt it though; his wife (I assume she was) struck me as a woman who wouldn't tolerate that.

I never cease to be amazed at how most people will just take what they hear as fact without finding out the truth for themselves. I once heard nothing but bad things about a pastor, and I didn't form an opinion until I met him and found out that all I heard was lies.

(1) If anyone has a problem with how and where I live, that's their problem. (2) The ONLY One who has the right to condemn me for what I do is God. (3) People are welcome to their opinion, and they're also welcome to keep it to themselves. (4) If God doesn't condemn it in His word, then no one else has the right to do so.

If you're embarrassed to tell people about enjoying being clothes-free, then perhaps it would be best to keep it to yourself. That, unfortunately, isn't always possible. Someone else (like with my son-in-law) might "out" you. Some people have a job that could be jeopardized by that announcement, because of people's negative ideas about nudity--especially social nudity.
The Righteousness of Christ--the ONLY clothing I need.
